Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Broken Meeple

The Broken Meeple is a show based in the UK set up in August 2013 that reports on board and card games from the perspective of Luke Hector, a born-again hard-core gamer. The podcast gives my first impressions of recent board games played, discusses various gaming related subjects that are topical and recently now issues a new Top 10 list every episode chosen by you, the gamers on BoardGameGeek. The aim of the podcast is to give a fun and interesting look on the board gaming hobby whilst not being afraid of going against the hype when necessary. The podcast can also be subscribed to on ITunes.

More positive now, with the UK slowly going back to normal, I'm able to exercise a lot more at the gym and get my massage therapy fortnightly. As a result, the stress is much lower despite work being hard as ever! :-) After some great channel updates of content released and incoming I give a shout-out to Shelf Clutter who you should support under #supportsmallcreators if you want news on Kickstarter Games.

For channel updates, there's some fun content to come including a great live stream next week. Gems & Biscuits gets my channel shoutout for the week - a local UK creator just starting out who will feature in an upcoming live collaboration Top 10 list in May. Show him some love for small creators. In the news I talk about new Twilight Imperium maps, Carcassonne 20th Anniversary, Agent Venom for Marvel Champions and my hopes for the upcoming UK Games Expo in 2021.

Channel updates including a trial run of a brand new ad hoc series as well starting to give you some board game news in general from the last couple of weeks. A shout-out for #supportsmallcreators to Mark Dainty at Not Bored Gaming. Then my first impressions from a nearly finished 1st campaign run of Sleeping Gods which has finally hit my table. There's a lot of good to say.........but also a couple of bads.........including one big bad.

- Channel updates for what's on the horizon including the new Broken Blitz Review format - update on how the #supportsmallcreators movement is going - Shout-out to Board Crazy for my small channel of the week - A detailed explanation of all the qualities I look for in a content creator for board games. This will hopefully provide some more context as to where I'm coming from. What kind of videos do I watch? What channels do I watch both small and large? What elements of a video do I look out for when it comes to integrity, humour and community support?

Bit of a "on the nose" topic today for everyone. After my channel updates and a shoutout to GAMING INDOORS for my channel promo, I have to tackle something I wished I didn't have to. I've have worries about the board game community particularly the creator community and lately we've seen a lot of drama on social media with designers, creators, gamers etc. And I can't not give my thoughts any longer! I need to try and rekindle some of that love for the community like I had 7 years ago when I first started as a content creator!
